You might think a cloud inversion is tremendously photogenic. Potentially this is true. I find however the cloud sea itself is usually not enough. You need rocks, foreground, layers, background, something, to create an evocative composition. Or perhaps the light is stunning in which case a simple view will be effective. Some years ago I had that experience at the summit of Scafell Pike at sunset. This shot is taken from Spain, where it was bright and sunny, looking down to cloud covered France. There’s a big drop down the other side all the way to the valley floor. It must have been very dull underneath this cloud.
